Urgency is starting to set in for the Houston Dynamo. After what
could easily be characterized as a spirited week of training, the Dynamo
are looking to come out and take steps to return to their consistently
physical and high-pressure form. That starts Saturday against Chivas USA (7:30 p.m.), as Houston is looking to turn
up the intensity as a way to get back into the win column.

One player that puts a smile on the faces of fans, teammates and coaches when he’s on the field is Brian Ching.

Figuring out why things are going wrong can be the hardest thing for a
team to do. The Dynamo are experiencing this during their seven-game
winless streak.

Last Saturday’s 2-0 loss to San Jose extended what has proven a very tough five weeks for the Houston Dynamo. 

After controlling the run of play in the first half, the Dynamo failed
to match the home team’s energy in the second 45, ultimately conceding
two gut-wrenching goals. Houston’s inability to sustain its first-half
play continues to be an Achilles heel for Dominic Kinnear’s men.

To those that know him best these days— his teammates and coaches on the Houston Dynamo — Will Bruin is the Dancing Bear.

The nickname is less a reference to his last name and more to the
6-foot-2, 195-pound rookie striker's combination of grace and
physicality. After recording the first goal of his hat trick against D.C. United on
April 29, Bruin’s celebration let the rest of the league in on the
team’s running joke.

Rivalries prosper for a number of reasons, but the best provocation is respect.

It has been six years since the Houston Dynamo left San Jose for
South Texas, but the feelings of admiration and respect are still
there. Players and coaches who moved to Houston with the team hold a
strong connection to the city they will visit with a matchup against the
Quakes on Saturday (9:30 p.m. CT, Galavisión, SportsTalk 790, La Ranchera 850).
